Magherafelt Christmas Market is back!
A fantastic array of 25 artisan food and craft stalls selling local high quality products, will be the centrepiece of the 2016 market, taking place from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th December, and the first event to be held in the newly refurbished town centre.
Enjoy browsing and sampling the locally produced food and drink, or take time to unwind in the lounge, where you can experience a craft beer, hot mulled wine or just sit and relax. There will be lots of hints and tips for Christmas feasts and local bands and school children will perform in the marquee over the weekend.
You can vote for your favourite taste too, as local butchers will compete for the crown of “Magherafelt’s Best Banger” or why not enter the Christmas Jumper Competition taking place on Sunday 4 December?
All wrapped up in this smorgasbord of treats will be Magherafelt’s Christmas Lights Switch-on on Saturday 3rd December at 7pm, with Chair of Mid Ulster District Council and Santa of course, finishing the evening of festive fun with a spectacular fireworks display.
Once again, this Christmas, there will be reduced car parking rates in Magherafelt town centre and diversions will be in place for the duration of the market. Further details to be announced soon.
